The Electoral College

Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts has proposed abolishing the electoral college after Donald Trump won the electoral vote but fell short some 3 million ballots in the popular vote.

The electoral college is set forth in the U.S. Constitution as the process by which each state is allotted a number of electors equal to its congressional delegation plus two. How state uses those votes depends. 

Another group wants Ohio voters to approve a plan that would dedicate its electoral votes to whichever candidate wins the popular vote.

Today on All Sides with Ann Fisher, the history of the electoral college and how it works today.
